Welcome to Seattle – The History and Perks of This Beautiful City

Seattle is a city full of life, culture, and awesome amenities. If you’re thinking of moving or have just relocated, here’s a brief introduction to the city, some incredible entertainment opportunities, and a bit of the history behind our apartment complex.

Seattle’s Early History

Seattle was founded by and named after Noah Sealth. Also know as Chief Seattle, he was a member of the Suquamish tribe. The city was established as Seattle in 1852 but was formerly known as Duwamps. The stunning metropolis had its fair share of setbacks, including the Great Seattle Fire of 1889. The effects of this disaster and the renovations made to the city are highlighted on the Seattle Underground Tour.
